    i believe everything that has happened or will happen, happens for a reason too. it would be good to know why sometimes, and to understand why, but other times it makes sense..

    I believe everything happens

    for a reason. People change so you can learn how to let go. Things go wrong, so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    You damn right. You might know yet.

    But later in life you will realise, oh that's why it happened and laugh about it. Enjoy yourself, don't beat yourself up for it.

    I'm a firm believer in this

    because every action has a reaction. What ever you give out you get back. Everything always lines u. Something always needs to happen before something else does. Sometimes bad turns to good.. Good to bad... Good to great... Bad to worse... It all depends on choices we make

    Safety Net There is none in life.

    Life is about making choices, making mistakes and learning from them. Picking up the pieces and making the best of it. What I have noticed about people is that they are looking for that brass ring, the pot at the end of the rainbow, that safety net. Out of fear, they stay...

    Whether you believe in fate

    or destiny, I believe that they happen for a reason and we all are born to live up to something so that we can teach one another. Our lives we cannot predict, and that's the amazing thing of life's surprises. I just wish that things would be amazing always but that can't always...

    One door closes and another one opens.

    There is always that one friend

    or significant other that let's you down after you put all your trust and faith into them .. You can't stop people from doing what they wanna do ; sometimes you just have to step back & watch karma play a role.

    No money. Lease ending in a few days. Don't know where I'm going to live. Don't know what I'm going to do in life. I'm truly scared of the future. But I just hope everything connects in my life and all this turns to be some good real soon

    we want to believe it

    because in this way we can pretend to have control on our life. The problem is that we can't accept that most of the things happen in our life are because of the chaos. Simple, nothing else.
